With this smoothie, I would like to show you how delicious breakfast can be without having any sugar at all. It might be a bit of an adjustment to be eating savory food for breakfast. The upside will be: far more energy and mental focus throughout the day. Your taste buds will adjust as well and sweet breakfasts might not be tasting as good as they once did.
